that the g.o.p. was flat on its back and wouldn't be able to recover and come out of the wilderness obama victory for months or years. now the first election called the g.o.p. has the win in their column. it raises questions what happens for democrats, particular lay creigh deeds democrat. moderate centrist from a blue dog state. there have to be concerns on the democratic party about whether or not the obama agenda and the democratic congressional agenda in washington makes it difficult for democrats to get elected in places that are red states or won by john mccain in 2008 or are just generally conservative. it is a cautionary tale out of virginia for democrats and one that prats republicans are purely delighted about. bill: that means that virginia was a blue state for just one year. and then i wonder what and we have to do some reporting on this for tomorrow. i wonder what the main issue was driving the vote in virginia. was it health care? was it afghanistan? i wonder what it was? do you know? >> well, there were a number of things. we know from the exit polls, for instance, that the
that. glenn: did you vote for obama? >> i did. glenn: why? >> i was torn. i voted for him and then i voted all republican. i was torn -- i did it mostly out of sense of obligation to grow the part of martin luther king and people who grew up through alabama and i got to be honest with you. the president is getting a free pass within the black community on so many things. where are the jobs? what are you doing for the little people? we're supposed to have a trickle up economy. i remember those words. glenn: i do, too. >> you don't trickle up when you give a.i.g. billions and goldman sachs billions. glenn: so what do we do? >> i am hoping that somehow the kids, balls it's always about the youth, that the kids will be able to look around and say this president obama, a guy who made it and i want to use his footprint and he made it through education. he is a wonderful speaker. he has a great education. that, to me, is ultimately how to turn all of this around. glenn: charles, i was -- i'm puzzled not just by your life experience as an african-american kid where, you know, you get beat up

of americans that approve of president barack obama's presidency has slipped to lower than high. 48%. since taking office, obama's highest majority rating was 69%. january of 2009, seven days after his inauguration. this current obama chill may have fortified ed henry of cnn to pose this audacious question to the new president this week. >> can you envision a scenario where you don't run for free election? >> if i feel like i have made the very best decision for the american people and three years from now i look at it and my poll numbers are in the tank, and you know, because we have gone through these changes, you know, politically, i'm in a ll right. >> question, is president obama saying more than he says in this response to ed henry? >> no, i don't think so. i think this is like ronald reagan saying look, if it doesn't work out, i can go back to the ranch and chop wood and i'll be perfectly happy. he's saying something like that. he's in serious trouble for this reason. the economic policies do not appear to be working with unemployment at 10.2%, and now people are talking about a seco
, the unemployment, social security revenues are down. so now we are borrowing, president obama saying we are going to bar a $1.4 trillion in 2009 just to keep the federal budget going. going to be borrowing $9 trillion over the next ten years. now that means we will be doubling the national debt of the united states from the time the republic was created in the next nine years and that is an unsustainable amount of borrowing especially when we are so heavily dependent on china to buy the debt. now, to get a full idea what i mean by america for sale you can see the image we put on the cover of the book which is the tad of america has a sales tag the little red and so you can tie it on to something to be sold with the bar code, and so i am seeing with the social security checks maybe we ought to and starting to print social security checks at the bottom paid to you courtesy the china. we couldn't pay the social security checks or the medicare or the medicaid unfunded liabilities. in fact maybe we ought to go a step further. maybe we ought to just owls worse the social security up ministration to chi
, by contrast, foxnews.com says the a.p. didn't bother checking either one of barack obama's books. what is behind this double standard? my next guest is somebody who knows a great deal about the media and has even spent time with governor sarah palin on the campaign trail. let's take a look. >> when i was asked to come out here to all of you and introduce the governor today, i was, of course, incredibly honored. but let's be honest. i was really excited just to be able to talk for five minutes without getting interrupted. and let me tell you this -- when it gets hot in the kitchen, the governor may be from alaska, but she can take the heat. sean: we're now happy to be joined by the author of "the g free diet, a gluten free survival guide." she is the emmy award-winning host of abc's "the view," the one and only lids bet hasselbeck. i love the show. i watch it all the time. >> not everybody does. sean: at least it's a rosie-free zone. >> sean, you're bad, but indeed, it is. sean: you said you watched the interview last night with sarah palin. >> i did. sean: i was with you when you gave

the end of september. through this past wednesday, president obama has held nine major meetings onhe matr. while he has tossed and turned over the war, at least that decision is up to him alone. not so health care. democrats are caught in the great civil war on how to end that battle. nancy pelosi found a three-vote margin to pass the bill out of the house. there is no clear way to the 60 votes they need in the senate. all these months and no clear path to obama's prime goal for the year. mike, that's the question. how is he doing it? >> you get out the old recipe for passing unprecedented legislation, prayer, good luck charms, a visitation by bill clinton this week to rally the troops and old fashioned political muscle applied inside the democratic party to get this thing passed. it's a hard lift. lots of tests to come. the plan now is to get it through the senate by christmas so they can conference it possibly by state of the union. chris: did the president make a mistake by letting the congress over all these months, you do it, i'll cheerlead. was that a mistake? >> you look back at th
the detainee's @ gitat gitmo? jon: republicans take the governor's seats in two states carried easily by obama last year. the biggest surprise was in new jersey, he became the garden state's first republican governor in more than one decade. in virginia bob macdonald trounces his democratic opponent by a margin of 18 points, even winning suburban washington, d.c. counties that went for the president in november. the white house press secretary said that the president is disappointed that his friend jon corzine was not reelected and that the democratic candidate in virginia had always been an underdog. the president did not watch election results last night, instead he took in an hbo special on the campaign that resulted in his election one year ago. carl, break it down for us. any similarities between what happened in virginia and new jersey? >> you have got to wonder what the president was watching from 2008 that was so fascinating that it was more fascinating than the votes being cast in 2009. first of all, the economy and all of that encompasses was on the mind of a vast majority of voters.
>> sarah palin is back with her new book. president obama had a message about the freedom of speech during his visit today. plus, why these protesters were frustrated outside of goldman sachs today. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> this is abc 7 news at 6:00, "on your side." >>> it is already a big success, sarah palin's new book and there is speculations about a political future. >> she sat down with oprah today and now many people are wondering if she is just pushing her book or pushing her way to washington. >> political insiders note that her book tour stops looking lot like a political map. she is skipping the big book sales cities like washington, d.c., new york, and san francisco. in the interview, oprah asks her about her presidential plans and why she quit as governor. >> does that mean you are reloading for 2012? >> i am concentrating on 2010 and making sure we have issues tackled as americans to make sure -- >> are you thinking about it? >> no. >> voters were divided over 80 sarah palin presidency. >> if the guarantees a win for preside
is wrong with the military. sean: your overview of barack obama. in short, mine is, he is a radical ideologue, has no inclination or tendencies toward moderation. what do you think when you look at what he's doing to the economy, health care, banks, car companies, and national security? >> much worse than i thought. early on, i will confess, when i heard people sang "socialist," i said come easy. hold up. you know me. then, his communications director steps up and says how she admires socialists. i thought he was a great politician. we know he is a great politician. i thought he would give it once he saw -- i thought two tuesdays ago, new jersey and virginia, but he would have it. it is ideologies. sean: we saw what happened last tuesday. with the gubernatorial elections in particular, i think it was a political earthquake. i think the democrats or in denial about it. here in lies an opportunity for the republican party, which i have been critical of, for losing core values, to go back to basic principles. i think they could beat nancy pelosi. they could take back the house. do you

"the new york times brandy issue of the alaskan independence party on its front pages. if you go to the museum -- newseum and look at the front pages of the nation's newspapers in 2008, it was filled with the pregnancy of her eldest daughter. this does not strike me as front-page news, certainly not something to be fronted without any consideration of the fact that it has on the family, the girl, or that it has on the child as he grows older. host: what about the web? guest: [laughter] the blogosphere is pretty vitriolic. the maternity of three youngest son was kicked around on many leftist web sites. it was referred to by many established newspapers. all of these things kind of come to fruition, and we have to be skeptical of
with a card like that. >> your over view of barack obama, in short mine is audience knows this, he is a radical i'd log and has no inclination or tendencies toward moderation. what do you think when you look at what he is doing to the economy banks healthcare and national security? >> much worse than i thought. early on i will confess when i heard people say socialist this that and the other thing. i said easy guys, hold up. you know me the professor. >> you told me that. >> ease up and his communications director steps up and says how much he admires mount saint toon. i thought i hoped he was great politician. he is a great politician a great campaigner. i thought he would pivot once he saw i thought after two tuesdays ago he would pivot. i think he's commit to do his ideology. nothing blinds people to reality like ideology. >> we saw what happened last tuesday the gubernatorial elections. >> how about that chris christie. >> it was a political earthquake. i think the democrats are still in denial about it. there in lies an opportunity for the republican party which i have been cr

the excitement that surrounded the barack obama election. it is what i took to be a lot of press commentary and outside the press that we had just gone through some kind of watershed, a signal of and. the election of barack obama was unquestionably a special event. it went beyond that pretty went to questions of a major transformation in the party system, people talked about an expected a large surge in the turnout of the election. many americans and academics and commentaries outside academia talked about a decline in the republican base. generally, there was a sense that existed out there that may still be there to some degree that we did not just watch election in which the incumbents were defeated and a new group of the democrats won but rather an election where something, in some sense, transformational happened. in many past elections there is always the story of something special that happened in the election. as an attribute of american politics, we have a penchant of looking elections where something special happens. i decided to take a look at that. i realized it is not an easy th
feeling about the importance of new jersey to republicans? >> i think, look. i think president obama plays less of a role in new jersey that he does in the new york 23rd district or the virginia gubernatorial or others. but i do think president obama does play a role, and it is a sign. look, he got 57 percent of the vote. jon corzine in the summer last 90-odd polls, going back to january, has been at or above 42% several times. they won by 15, and they are scrapping to win it. >neil: yes, but a w is a w, right? >> dip peering into past elections, for example, in virginia, president obama won by six points -- dell the into past elections. let's say he wins by 40 -- delving into past elections. let's say he wins by 14. a swing of five points in the last senatorial elections last fall would have been the difference between republicans having the 40 seats -- a five- point swing towards mccain would have made john mccain president, so if you are a democrat looking at your election in the fall of 2010, and you see a huge swing in the fall of 2009, it has to be unsettling. they could be even stro

one statement to say. i know it is not hard for obama to want to kill other muslims because i'm not sure he is a christian. i did not say we need to send more troops to afghanistan because the pakistanis are stepping up and with both of us working together, i think we can come to a conclusion over there. then we will not have to worry about anymore terror attacks. thank you. host: thank you and thanks to all of you for your calls and comments. of course, we will have the prime minister from india here at the white house for a news conference this morning and the state dinner tonight, 6:00 on the west coast. tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m. here on the washington -- on the "washington journal" we can continue the conversation. enjoy the rest of your day. . . >> we will take you live to the white house for the joint news conference with president obama and the indian prime minister. later, a look at the global food shortage. >> thanksgiving day, at 10:00 eastern bill clinton is on hand to present steven spielberg with an award. from the jfk library and museum, nick burns on terrori
. it was a very successful program, in the same way that the obama campaign organized voters and used social needed to turnout its supporters in 2008. but it was never the strategy of the bush campaign to seek the middle of the electorate and turnout every republican in the country. both political parties, when you go into an election, you want to turnout every available voter in your party. on the tactical level, we were able to do that effectively. but that does not displease the necessity of trying to win the center of the electorate. -- that does not displace the necessity of trying to win the center of the electorate. >> i was on the side of that campaign. my perspective was that the bush campaign did have a base strategy. my evidence to that would be the following. you want to understand the strategy of a campaign and that it is manifested effectively. you can look good when and how they're spending their dollars and it will tell you is essentially what their strategy is. if you look at the 2004 bush media by, some other top markets in the country, pensacola florida, where the most rep
and confusing. but one thing is clear -- president obama and the democrats have cut a dirty deal with the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries. obama took single payer off the table. and in exchange, the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries supported his drive for reform. that is why harry and louise, once again paid for by big pharma, are back on the air, this time arguing for passage of the democratic health care legislation. there are 88 members of the house who say they support single payer. yet only congressmen dennis kucinich and eric massa courageously stood up and voted earlier against president obama and against nancy pelosi and against steny hoyer and against the democratic leadership of congress. kucinich called the democratic bill, a bailout under a blue cross. nasa said the bill would enshrine in law the monopolistic powers -- massa said the bill would enshrine in law the monopolistic powers of the private health insurance industry. single payer action today is calling on the 88 single payer supporters in the house to stop hiding. come out, come out wherever you

a warehouse to house the gitmo detine knees. president obama promised to close the place for next year. julie kirtz has the latest from washington. >> although no decision has been announced, an obama administration official tells us a near empty prison is an option for detain tees from guantanamo bay. an idea backed by the governor wood would allow the federal bure reof prisons to buy the prison and turn it into a supermax facility. the prison is in a small town called thompson village, 150 miles west of chicago. local proponents of the idea say it will bring 3,000 much-needed jobs to the area. but there is plenty of opposition for those who say it's horrible way to help the local economy and make the area a terror target. >> i can't imagine the people of illinois would like to have the prisoners encars rated in the state. there may be some local officials who support it but i expect it will be a huge issue in illinois, probably in the u.s. senate race up there next year. >> a huge issue is decision by the obama administration to bring khalid sheikh mohammed and the alleged 9/11 mastermind a

think that this is a metaphor. we have not had president obama with the kinds of swings in the approval that bill clinton did. . . . >> you have to look at both of the obamas. you have to look at the polling. i do an opinion poll with a democrat, what how we describe barack obama with these numbers. we did the 14 attributes, and he's put these between the personal ratings, and things -- these are things that have to do with his job. he averaged a 61% rating. although those ratings have slipped, he had really declined in the job rating. this is a country that, given the problems, they wanted the president to be successful. i think these are exacerbated by the economic tension. we are thinking, one year from now, if the economy is not better, who do you blame? bush and the republicans or obama and the democrats. i like the idea, if this is not better, who do you blame? 24 points more said that this was tied. they said, these are your ideas. i think that we will be turning into -- we will have a very good 2010, but just like 1982 and 1994, this does not mean very much for 2012. my other qu
